Know the Possibilities
Know your strengths and weaknesses
“Knowing the Possibilities” begins with the recognition that with God, all things are possible. Yet at the same time we are exhorted to count the cost and plan. Major building projects in the Bible(the Tabernacle, Solomon’s Temple, rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem) are good models for building an organization.
The single most important “possibility” is knowing your prospects. We need to know about those to whom we seek to minister--basic demographics so we can organize to best reach them; their physical, emotional, and intellectual needs to allow us to provide effective ministry; their current spiritual condition; the methods that would best reach them.
